About Joaquín Núñez

Master Rumbero Joaquín Núñez Hidalgo began playing percussion instruments at the age of five. As a professional artist Joaquín has had a successful music career in Cuba. Performing in numerous musical events and festivals, he has shared the stage with most of Cuba’s elite musicians.

Eventually settling in Toronto in 1999, Joaquín quickly became immersed in the local music scene performing as a drummer and percussionist with top Canadian based artists (Jane Bunnett, Bill King, Njacko Backo, Eddie Bullen, Hilario Durán, Canadian Tenors, Luis Mario Ochoa), performing in many Jazz festivals (Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Beaches Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax Jazz Festival among others) across the country as well as internationally.

Mr. Hidalgo presents an extraordinary collection of musicians providing an exciting experience in art and entertainment. He is now an accomplished recording artist, performer musician and excepcional teacher and facilitator.
